I was trekking around the Essex Street Market Saturday and nearly walked right past this tiny little stall.
The fun, bright colored wall pulled me in when I realized this was Dorie Greenspan's cookie place!
The thought of trying out a baked good from the multiple James Beard award winner herself had me on cloud nine. I began with the original Sable.
This classic french cookie was just as it should be- buttery, crisp and practically begging for a nice big Cafe au Lait on the side. Ummm...Can I have this for breakfast every day?
It only got better with the World Peace- a blend of two types of bittersweet chocolate with a nice dose of fleur de sel. One bite and I was pretty certain these cookies could amend some serious world problems.
Unfortunately the Espresso Chocolate Chip cookie was a downer. The texture was dry and flaky almost as if it had been cooked too long. Luckily I saved a little World Peace to finish my cookie binge and all was right with the world in the end. Dorie herself is said to man the station often so a return trip soon is definitely on the list.
